My antenna is mounted to the right rear tail light. I just tuck it under the rear window wiper arm (harf top) when I 'm going in the garage. The antenna is a firestick mounted on a spring so that makes it easier...

Can't say I made it for my Jeep though...

That's an idea! I could also tuck it under my new roof rack when I'm gonna use it again soon, because mine is also mounted on the right rear tail light, on a copy of that cool stainless steel bracket they have at Quadratec. But I do like being able to take it off completely and stow it somewhere safe.

Very glad if someone else could also use it.

An antenna mount that uses one bolt on the spare tire mount.

I started off with one of these..


Thought and thought and thought about what to do with it. I did not want to Drill any holes in the jeep. So I ended up with this.



I went out and bot a grade 8 flange bolt to make up for the extra length needed.

Lots of cutting, sanding, fitting and painting. This is the final product.



Mounted at 27ft lbs. I ended up using a stack of washers on the inside of the mount to prevent it from folding at the factory torque.



100% Finished.



All in all costed me like 5 dollars. I will not post the full build detail on this thread.

Made hybrid shortened PSC Crusher Corners/OR-Fab tire carrier mount. Welded in plates to the corners so the tailgate hinge bolts support some of the weight too like the original OR-fab mount.




Why don't you go back to your home on whore island?!

Tim, can you give more info on the airbag bezel and guage you used. That looks sharp!

first, here is the link to my swap thread on another forum. i have one here but it did not get much attention. there are many comments and a lot of useful info there. AW-4 SWAP

this is a write-up that i did to go along with stu's. he hosted it for me on his site. what a pal! TIM"S SWAP ON STU"S SITE

okay, here's a little bit about the gauge and lights you see in the picture:


here is the gauge in the box. it is an autometer 2 5/8" electrical transmission temperature gauge. i like the autometer gauges because they are one of the last ones made in america. U.S.A. that is and a fine gauge at that. i cant remember what the series of the gauge is called but it is the one with a matte silver ring and silver face. looks real good.


the airbag switch disembowled.

i
here is what is inside. my 97 tj did not come with an airbag disconnect. this switch was just a hole filler that did not get hooked up.


there it is installed. i guess i should take another picture with the novak shifter cane in there to complete the picture, huh?

the red light you see lets me know when the electric cooling fan is running
the green light is on whenever the power for the fan is switched on. this lets me switch off the fan for whatever reason i see fit. water crossings, etc...

the instrument lighting is tied into the lights for all the other gauges, stock and otherwise. i brazed a sensor bung into the tranny pan. it just screws right in with some thread sealant and one wire to the back of the gauge.

So, the airbag switch and bezel is from a wrangler too? Mine did not come with a switch either.

HAHA! Good eye... Suprising how I can miss something like that. Maybe it's just been temporarily removed? Pretty sure they didn't make a 2wd TJ so yeah...

it is out of a wrangler. a tj... and it did come 99 and on. i think a few years in the middle were skipped. 97s did not have them an some if not all 98s didnt either. this one is from a 99.

the shifter for the t-case was explained above when you snipped the pic you took it out. lol!! i took the pic while the novak cane was cooling, getting painted or something.
